battery light is usually an issue with the alternator, and if it isn't charging the battery, you will have issue like your experiencing. Put a voltmeter across the battery terminals when the engine is off, what is the voltage, over 12V? Start the LC and measure the voltage, is it 14V?

my mom says that the mechanic put the voltmeter on the battery when the engine was off and with the alternator and he said that is was good so what should i do

Might be a wiring issue then. Check your battery cables and wiring to the alternator and starter for crack and corrosion. The mechanic should have inspected that.
